Caribbean Cinemas Selects Barco Exclusively to Complete Circuit-Wide Digital Cinema Deployment

Barco teams with Ballantyne Strong to outfit up to 437 screens for the Caribbean Islands’ largest theater chain
Barco, a global digital cinema technology leader, in partnership with Ballantyne Strong, a digital cinema supplier and systems integrator, is providing a wide array of DLP Cinema® projectors to Caribbean Cinemas, beginning with installations in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, followed by deployments in seven other islands.

Barco and Ballantyne Strong are providing a full range of digital cinema projectors to convert Caribbean Cinemas’ film-based theaters to the latest, state-of-the-art digital projection technology, ultimately installing projectors in up to 437 screens. Caribbean Cinemas selected Barco after months of in-depth due diligence and research, resulting in a deal that will expand Barco’s digital cinema footprint far and wide in the West Indies. The cinemas showcase not only first-run theatrical releases and art house films in both English and Spanish, but alternative content as well, including the upcoming 2012-13 Metropolitan Opera season.

“We are pleased to partner with Barco and Ballantyne to elevate movie presentation quality to the highest possible level for our valued patrons,” commented Robert Carrady, President of Caribbean Cinemas. “We chose the Barco projectors because of their superior image quality and excellent reliability, and appreciate the added prestige of having the world’s brightest digital cinema projector – an essential quality for today’s immersive and 3D movies.”

“Caribbean Cinemas have been a valued partner to Ballantyne Strong, Inc. for over 20 years. We are delighted to continue this relationship and be part of their transition to the digital age. Barco projectors will dramatically elevate their presentation quality as they expand to showcase a wider range of entertainment, from feature films to live broadcasts and alternative programming,” commented Ray Boegner, Senior Vice President, Ballantyne Strong, Inc. “As a turnkey digital cinema integrator and service provider, we’re proud to partner with Barco to provide our customers with the ultimate image quality at the lowest total cost of ownership.”

Barco and Ballantyne Strong are installing both its “B” and “C” series projectors, including 3D, to provide the perfect match for every screen throughout Caribbean Cinema’s circuit. Most of the auditoriums will feature Barco’s DP2K-12C for screens up to 12m, all the way up to its largest, world record-winning DP2K-32B.

“We’re very pleased to help Robert and his team capitalize on the opportunity to significantly enhance its entertainment offerings with projectors that match Caribbean Cinema’s commitment to quality and attention to detail,” comments Patrick Lee, Vice President Digital Cinema for Barco North America.
